Pic Photography Studio

This past October, Katie, a very close friend of mine, tied the knot and held her reception in Rochester, Michigan. As part of her bridal party, I was included in the traditional picture-taking between the ceremony and reception. Katie and her husband Jim, chose Connie Falmer of Pic Photography Studio. She was energetic, professional, and made the whole process a fun experience for everyone. It's an honor to share Pic Photography Studio with everyone on Wed Michigan!

What is your favorite part about living in Michigan?
We love change and contrast; therefore, the changing seasons and unpredictable weather are actually an amazing element to work with as photographers. We love photographing outside with natural light, and to be able to incorporate the season or weather can add to the beauty of wedding images. If we are given a background of fall colors, a rainy day, snow falling or sun peaking out of the clouds, we take a creative approach so that your images are unique to your wedding day.

What unique services do you offer?
As artists we take great pride in personally designing our clients wedding albums. Each album is custom created to highlight amazing images from the wedding day, while reflecting our couple’s style and personality. From start to finish we enjoy the planning and processing of our images so that couples have artwork to cherish for a lifetime.

In addition, as a husband and wife team we not only know what is involved in planning a wedding but also the dynamics that are needed for a successful relationship. We are able to relate with every client as they begin the planning of their wedding through the start of their family.

What is your favorite thing/moment to photograph at a wedding?
Capturing the relationship between the bride and groom is our favorite aspect to photograph on the wedding day. Whether we shoot a “first look” moment prior to the ceremony or the couple enjoying themselves after they have said their vows, the chemistry between them on their special day is undeniable. A wedding is about the bride and groom, so we feel strongly that they should have a collection of images that display the passion and excitement they are feeling. We encourage couples to set aside time on their wedding day so that we can focus on creating artistic and fun images of the them (and their bridal party too).

What advice would you give Michigan couple's when choosing a photographer?
Your photographer is one of few vendors who are with you throughout your entire wedding day. Therefore, be sure to schedule consultations and talk with the actual person who will be photographing your day. This will allow you to feel out their personality, style and approach that will be taken on your special day.

It is also important to keep in mind that wedding photography is an important investment, as those images and albums will be cherished and enjoyed for a lifetime. We also encourage couples to reserve photographers who offer polished images and completed albums, as it is key to have images and albums that are professionally created and cared for.

Any memorable weddings you've worked that are your favorite?
Every wedding and couple are so unique, so each event is an adventure to photograph. From the grand affairs to the quiet events we love being able to create beautiful and artistic images from that day.
